Claude has been an instructor in ACLS, BLS and PALS since 2010. His background in medicine is as a paramedic which he was active as for 22 years and has been involved in EMS for the last 29 years. He is married and has three children. He is originally from the state of Michigan but met his wife in Iowa and then we moved to California. He no longer gets to work as a paramedic due to being assaulted in the back of an ambulance and tore his right rotator cuff. "I am thankful to be able to continue teaching and absolutely love teaching for Central Valley Medical. I enjoy meeting new people in the classes but I especially love being able to make a difference in the way they see their jobs and are able to perform them. There is nothing quite like seeing the lightbulb turned on in somebody's mind when you explain something to them having to do with one of these classes. I look forward to teaching at Central Valley medical for as long as they need me. I appreciate the opportunity that they have provided and look forward to all the different people I'm gonna get a chance to meet and teach."
